Jerzy Ziętek Silesian Park in Chorzów, until recently known as the Regional Park of Culture and Recreation, is called "green lungs" of the industrial aglomeration. It covers more than 600 acres. Everyone will find here something for themselves, from relaxing walks to mass events. There are many attractions in the park , such as the Planetarium (the largest and oldest in Poland), the Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park, the Silesian Stadium, the Legendia Silesian Amusement Park (the largest in Poland), and the Rose Garden.
The Nicolaus Copernicus Planetarium and Astronomical
Observatory in Chorzów is the oldest and largest of its kind
in Poland. Each of us probably knows from school
textbooks the distinctive dome of the building, which is
also the largest projection screen in Poland, with a
diameter of 23 m! Thanks to the projector, which weighs 2
tons (!), and the largest refractor telescope of a 30-inch
diameter lens in Poland, we can admire the Universe.
The Silesian Zoological Garden in Chorzow is one of the many attractions that can be benefit from the Silesian Park. Thanks to its great location in the center of the Silesian agglomeration, it is a crowded place visited by numerous inhabitants of the region and many tourists (about 400 thousand guests
per year!). You will find here more than 2500 animals from all over the world. Besides,there are a mini-zoo and the Dinosaur Rock Valley, which attract the youngest.
The Sports and Recreation Club "Trial" is located in the famous Park of Silesia in Katowice, which is an oasis of greenery extending between this city and Katowice. The club offers both riding lessons and the development of sporting ambitions. Every year the "Trial" organizes the General Jerzy Ziętek Regional Competition of Horse Jumping, as well as the Competition for the Cup of the Silesian Voivode. Besides, there are trips, rallies and riding schools.
The Silesian Stadium in Chorzów is one of the "legends" of
Polish football. The idea of building the stadium appeared in
the interwar period, but it was not until the 50s of the last
century, when it was erected. Once it was opened in 1956, it
was the largest facility of its kind in the country. It could
accommodate more than 100,000 spectators. A lot of
football matches and speedway competitions held on the
stadium have gone down in history. Currently, the stadium is
being under reconstruction.
One of the tourist sights located in the Silesian Park (formerly the Regional Park of Culture and Recreation) is an open-air museum with an area of 22 hectares, in which there are more than 70 historic buildings. The exhibits collected in the museum come from the five sub-regions of Upper Silesia (the Beskids, the Piedmont, Pszczyna-Rybnik, the Industrial sub-region and Lubliniec) and from Zagłębie (Coal Basin). The Museum "Upper Silesian Ethnographic Park in Chorzów" is on the Wooden Architecture Trail of the Silesia province.
